Me: wide rooted, tall rooted, very close set. Somewhat shallow. I need a wide cup that is open on top with either a very low gore, or the rare extremely narrow gore.
I can't believe how soft and stretchy the cups on this bra are. They feel like a softer neoprene. This bra is a bit more closed on top than I'd like. However, the material is so pliable and soft, I couldn't resist and I think it will mold to my shape. I hope it will. I love the lace and applique detail.
Edit: this material is what they call a "spacer bra". I love it in this heat. Breathable yet seamless and provides some lining
This bra disappointingly features the same large band as many similar Simone Perele bras - I keep hoping to find one that is a bit tighter, as I believe my Revelation wasn't so loose when I bought it originally - 1-2 years of wear did that. I remeasured my underbust, wondering if I could possibly be closer to needing a 28" band and if that could explain the loose band, but nope. When I inhale, my underbust measures comfortably at almost 32"! Comfortable tightness is about 30.5", super tight actually is like 27.5" ... But I rarely wear my bras that tight.
I'd say this bra is a ...lot like the Andora, but it seems softer and less rigid than my black Andora was. The difference is the cute details with the straps, the accent lace color. The straps aren't fully adjustable, so that sucks. The cups seem a bit narrower than the bras I'm currently wearing. The cups are still wonderfully thin and soft.
I have an issue with both these bra models where there can be a small bubble of empty space at the tops of the cups (though the top of the cup lays flat), but later there can be a bit of quad-boob. I'm not sure what's up with that.
Overall, it's the same beautiful bra I fell in love with Simone Perele for. It's so soft, so comfortable. The materials feel so luxurious. I want to keep it, but I know the band will be too large. Read more 147 more words
The light, breathable cups are wonderfully accommodating for assemytry. The band, however, is very stretchy & doesn't offer much in the way of support. The shoulder straps are also disappointingly flimsy and only partially adjustable.
This bra worked well for me when I was smaller, but now I just need more support (and cup space) than what this bra can give me.
Band runs a little loose (looser than Andora, Wish) and the cup runs a tad small. I think it's mostly the wires being on the slightly narrow side, and the cup is more closed off at the top than I expected. Would have tried a 65F if there was one in the store, but 65E was too small. Very pretty, subtly feminine bra with gorgeous details, soft, quality material.
